“It's unreal, man,” Vought said. “Obviously it's a dream come true. It's awesome — a great feeling, getting picked out of high school. It's every kid's dream.”
Vought, an all-star catcher for the Spartans, had previously signed to play in college at Maryland.
Players have roughly a month to decide between pro or college ball. If Vought heads to Maryland, the next time he could be drafted is in 2020.
